...LOCALLY DENSE FOG WILL CONTINUE THIS EVENING...

THOSE OF YOU TRAVELING THROUGH THE QUAD STATE REGION WILL CONTINUE
TO EXPERIENCE RAPID CHANGES IN VISIBILITY DUE TO AREAS OF DENSE
FOG THIS EVENING.

WARM SOUTHERLY BREEZES ARE BRINGING ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES TO
THE REGION. THIS WARM AIR IS MOVING OVER THE RELATIVELY COLD
GROUND. THIS IS CAUSING THE AIR NEAR THE SURFACE TO BECOME QUITE
SATURATED...LEADING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF FOG. THE FOG WILL BE
LOCALLY DENSE AT TIMES AND MAY VARY RAPIDLY FROM ONE LOCATION TO
ANOTHER.

BE PREPARED FOR RAPID CHANGES IN VISIBILITY WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING
ON ROADWAYS. MAKE SURE THAT YOU KEEP YOUR HEADLIGHTS ON
LOW...SIGNAL YOUR INTENTIONS WELL AHEAD OF TIME...SLOW DOWN AND
LEAVE PLENTY OF ROOM BETWEEN YOURSELF AND OTHER DRIVERS ON THE
ROAD.

AS RAIN CONTINUES TO OVERSPREAD THE REGION...VISIBILITIES DUE TO
THE FOG WILL LIKELY IMPROVE SOME. DRIVERS WILL THEN NEED TO BE
WATCHFUL FOR PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS AND LOW LYING AREAS.
